Can one pair chocolate and the exclusive black truffle? Yes, we're referring to the black gold found in Italy - Piemonte - or the French Perigord region. And yes you can. This luxurious chocolate treat created by Jean-Philippe Darcis holds a black truffle ganache boasting earthy flavours. The trick is to cook the truffle as shortly as possible in the sugar mixture to keep it from losing its flavours.
